Haliburton Forest Camping

Hi All!

Planning on camping at Haliburton Forest for July Long weekend. I have a few campsite options and I wanted to ask around to see what others suggest!

We can stay at on Macdonald lake, and I'm more so leaning towards this lake because its bigger and holds trout. BUT Just wondered what the campsites are like? Are they quiet and private, also RIGHT on the water? Or are they set back and close to other campers?? Looking for a remote location to lay back and relax, without other campsite noises. I'm basically asking, are the campsites remote enough? Or are they too close to people and roads??

Please let me know how it went! I'm booked for Macdonald Lake as well (and they said it was one of the more private spots too)......

for fires ... can you just get wood from the forest or do you have to buy it at base camp?

You have resurrected Post from 2013! It’s akways wise to check the date, information on a 5 year old thread is out of date and often useless. The original poster gets email notification when someone posts on his thread. I highly doubt he cares now.

It’s best to ask a new question.
